Once upon a time, there was a book called Film Flubs. It was quite a hit with film fans, who wanted to
share the goofs, gaffes, and slip-ups they'd spotted in their favorite movies. They
were generous with their cards and letters listing the flubs they'd found, so along came Son of Film Flubs and Film Flubs: The Sequel. A few
years passed, and, as often happens in the world of books, the earlier titles became
difficult to find. This led to a new book: Roman Soldiers Don't Wear Watches, incorporating a brand-new collection of flubs along with
favorites from earlier volumes.

to roll in, many from readers who hadn't seen the earlier volumes. So we're back
with Film Flubs 1999, with more than one hundred new flubs along with a
collection of classics which didn't appear in Roman Soldiers Don't Wear Watches. We hope you'll enjoy this melange of the old and the
new. Many of the newer flubs appeared in films released during 1996 through
1998. If you didn't spot them when the films appeared in theaters, now's your
Thanks to the thousands of readers who have
made the Film Flubs books best-sellers in the field of entertainment books. Watch
for more in the future...and check out our newest book, Reel Gags.
